“Tuesday Quiz Night”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

We went to Quiz Night on Tuesday in the Spike Bar at the Arabian Ranches Golf Club. There were lots of tables of teams playing and a super atmosphere. Although we did not eat there was a comprehensive buffet available for those that wanted to eat. Parking was easy. There was no charge for entering the quiz.

“The mad hatters tea party!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

When our waiter skidded across the floor throwing my main course in the air, my friends and i realised that we were indeed in the land of utter chaos. The setting is nice, the back drop of the golf course typical of Dubai, however when it comes to serving food I suggest the club focuses on putting and driving. Over cooked steak that bounced around the plate, chips that were missing for the entire meal, the duck was tough as old boots and the drinks are rare as a hole in one. All in all one to be avoided! Tea off, don't go for tea!

“Restaurant review”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

It's so bad don't bother going, poor service, poor quality food. Place is like a playground at the weekends full of small children running around. This review is for the restaurant only, such a shame because it has the potential to be very good.

Training sessions have been put into place to ensure that the standards are maintained always.I am pleased to inform you that on Fridays we have the late breakfast starting at 10.00am to 2.00pm and we always set up the Restaurant terrace with kids play area where they can play and hang around instead of playing inside and in the lobby area.

“Lovely Food and Cracking Game of Golf”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We ate at the AR Golf Club yesterday. We took the whole family and sat outside. The food and service was very good. The view and atmosphere complimented the food and we had a great night.

I also played Golf there the other day - well worth the visit and wonderful greens.

“Good for family dining on the terrace”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

The funny thing about the Ranches Golf Club is that it is more popular as a local dining spot for families than as a Golf course. The outside terrace area is charming, with lush views over the 18th. Kids are permitted to happily play around the tables, which is great if youre a family with kids, but not so much if you're an earnest golfer or romantic duo. The food is standard, and service can be patchy, but it's still a winner for locals - probably due to a lack of other licensed premises close to home. The golf course is currently under renovation, so probably not the best time to play.

Thank you for sharing your experience from your recent visit to Arabian Ranches Golf Club.

Thank you for the continued patronage to Arabian Ranches Golf Club. I am very delighted to hear that your experience at Ranches Restaurant Terrace was good and also very happy to hear that the kids had a great time.

I have noted your comment about the service at our restaurant and would like to humbly mention that we have new colleagues on board and training sessions have been put in place to ensure consistent service.

As you mentioned, the Golf Course is being enhanced to improve the drainage system. I am doing my very best to ensure that the project is completed by end of September 2013.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor. We look forward to welcoming you back to Arabian Ranches Golf Club along with your family and friends.
